Has this ever happened to anybody?

This morning i was taking shots in a farmers market, came across a small group of pro life supporter anti abortionists. Took a shot of their demonstration and uploaded to live news as its a big issue at the moment here in Ireland. The image appeared on the live news feed as usual, some time later it was taken down and now is sitting in my "awaiting QC clearance". No reason from Alamy. Any clues please. I have fired of an email to alamy but that won't be acted on untill monday by which time it won't be news!

I've had them go missing to be told it was a tech issue, and that the appropriate staff won't be in until Monday. The good news (in my case and hopefully yours) was that they'd been sent to the editors so I shouldn't have missed out on the chance of sales in that respect.

A few years ago, I had a live news photo removed for being "not newsworthy" (in retrospect, it was a mistake to upload it) and then sent to QC where it eventually failed. Back then, you were locked out for a month after a failure. However, I don't think this type of thing happens any longer.

No thats the one i replaced it with last thing last night, and thanks for looking. I think i have resolved the issue, and probhably my fault, on rechecking i noticed i had left out the year on the caption, so the full date was incorrect. Lesson learned, always double check before uploading. What confused me was it did not get sent straight back but was on the live news feed for a while.

I'm looking forward to finding out what Alamy says about this. Like you said, the 8th Amendment is massive in Ireland at the moment.

I never include the year in the caption and I haven't had that happen. I once had live news put into QC because the date was set wrong on my camera and it looked like the pics had been taken months before.

All i can say is that the image with the correct date in still up on the live news feed, and Alamy guidelines for news feed asks for the full date, apart from that everything else is the same. No doubt it will get clarified tomorrow and i will share all.

Ah, I've just checked and it seems I do (usually, but not always) include the year on Live News - I must be on autopilot when I do it.

I once made a mistake with the date, but the news team contacted me to clarify it and then changed it for me. I think there must be a different reason it went into QC.

We shall see, as i said they are both identical images only the date has been corrected on the image that is still on live feed.

I've had that happen because the date in the meta was wrong. It went up, but kicked back to QC after about 20 minutes. Once i fixed the date and uploaded the image again, it was fine.

I've done that before and had the same result.
